(Henry Law, “Psalms”)
Earthly relationships are easily dissolved.
Affection may decay.
Fickleness begets estrangement.
Distance may part.
Death comes, and desolation sits
where happy fellowship once reigned.
But God’s love is strong, immutable, and
eternal. His heart beats with tenderness,
and is incapable of diminution or of change.
O Father, ever be a Father unto us!
“Even if my father and mother abandon me,
the Lord will hold me close.” Psalm 27:10
